Get Connected – October 2020

Get Connected is an exciting new way for young people aged 12-15 years who are deaf or hard of hearing to build social connections and confidence in a safe and supportive environment. After the success of Get Connected held in July, we are holding another one starting 15 October 2020.

Participants will build skills in self-advocacy, learn to speak up, create stronger connections to the deaf community and build friendships with their peers around the country and all online.

Please see the flyer attached for further information, we hope you are able to share it, together with the Auslan video – Deaf Children Australia YouTube and the Get Connected website.

We thought you might like to help spread the word about Get Connected among your audience.
